KKE blasts Tsipras' government for accomplishing "dirty missions against the people"

Source: / Translation: In Defense of Communism.

After the decision of Thursday's Eurogroup, the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) issued the following statement:

"Yesterday's Eurogroup welcomed and ratified the antipeople measures of the second review and the 4th memorandum- the largest package of measures, as it characteristically says- confirming that the SYRIZA-ANEL government is the government of "dirty" special missions against the people.

The disbursement of the installment, which will mainly go for the repayment of loans, the "wishes" for the debt after 2018 and the promises for development-investment packages lead to lasting memorandums, to the establishment and escalation of the antipeople policy, to the blood surpluses until 2060.

The only benefactors are the capital, the investors who will benefit both from the people's crash and the new privileges they are given. This is the subject of the negotiation behind the narrative of "development" that the government puts forward.

For the employees, the young people, the pensioners, the professional workers, the voted measures, the cuts in wages and pensions, the overthrows in labor rights, alongside all the rest which will be required as prerequisites for the any debt regulation, apply in full. So, for the people the result is "zero to the quotient".

The climate of euphoria that the government is trying to create to the people who are kneeling and bleeding because of the policy of all governments so far, is provocative and outrageous.

The fragile compromise between Germany, France, Italy, the USA- through the IMF- and the other EU countries, which actually has to do with the management of the excessive debts of other EU member-states, is reflected in the "acrobatic" and contradictory formalities of the decision for the debt regulation in the future, after the end of the program, as well as in the conflicting statements of the "protagonists".

The above cannot hide that, even if there is a debt reduction, the people know what they must wait for and do not believe the known fairytale that their sacrificies supposedly work (for their benefit). The real hope can only be born through rupture and clash with the current way. With a strong KKE, revitalization of the movement and social alliance".
